Spiaggia has a great location and reputation. The service and attention to detail are excellent. Ingredients are fresh. It is expensive and a bit of the "emperor's new clothes". The food simply is not delicious. The cuisine is an attempt at the imaginative but in the process sacrifices real flavor and savor. The wine and spirits selection is excellent and... More

I had dinner with my wife at Spiaggia on Saturday night. It had been several years since we last dined there. The food is still excellent, the service is impeccable and that is a great view looking out towards the lake. They must have a pretty good customer management system because they welcomed us back again and still remembered our... More

We visited Spiaggia for dinner before seeing Hamilton. The decor and food were both very nice. The service was also good. We had the Gnocchi Di Cinghiale with the wild boar ragu and the Branzino.

We hosted a celebration for 70 in one of Spiaggia's private rooms and it was seamless. Service was wonderful and the food was amazing.

This review is for the Cafe as the main restaurant was closed for the Beard awards. The space is to the side of the beautiful main dining room and is quite spartan. Several dishes on the limited menu were not available and the wine list at the cafe was pedestrian. After some fuss ( couldn't find the key), we were... More

We had a private business dinner for 12 of us. A set menu in a beautiful new room. Chef Tony Mantuano came out to greet us and give us some history of the restaurant and new room. Great guy and the atmosphere was beautiful. The bar served some wonderful cocktails and the food for the dinner was superb. The beauty... More

We had a late night dinner here because another restaurant messed up our reservations. Nothing on the menu really appealed to us. Found it rather expensive for the portions. We ordered some appetizers but were not inpressed with anything. The service, however, was very good.

I took an out of town foodie friend here and was not disappointed. Seriously the best gnocchi I have had in years. Waygu starter, risotto, and the duck were excellent as well.

I dined with my brother, as we were both visiting Chicago. The dining room is attractive and offers a view of Oak Street Beach. The service was very good. I liked the sommelier. The menu featured three courses, starter, primi, and secondi or a tasting menu. We were not interested in the tasting menu, so we ordered from the regular... More

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile.

It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
